thermapen

I just got my thermapen last week, was a little apprehensive about spendin' all that cash, but the thing kicks butt! I used it for that grilling gig I did sunday. We we grilling some marinated chicken breasts that were only like 6 oz. and probably less than an inch thick. didn't want to overcook them and dry them out, but didn't want them to be raw either. Used the thermapen for quick checks, 3 second wait time, low 160's and done! No complaints, all were cooked and juicy. Gotta say it was worth the cash...

Also used it to check grill temps around the grill, was averaging about 525*F......My captain and coke was 33*.....

I purchased one of these also. I bought 3 oven probes for it also and I'm using them instead of my nutemp. Put 3 probes into different meats and plug the thinest one into the unit. Just keep changing probes to check all the meats. Another great product from thermoworks.

How do you like your probes? Won't the wire melt while in the pit? Is the alarm loud enough? I'm tired of guessing when doing turkeys.

I haven't had any problems with the probes yet!
